Mishimoto Radiator and Hose Kit Review

Author: Ali Allage

Last Updated: 6/10/2008

Cost effective, more efficient, and quality build are the words that best describe the Mishimoto radiator. Lighter then stock, this radiator is great replacement to the stock unit and provides a greater cooling efficiency. Paired with a black finished silicone hose kit, this radiator makes a great addition for those looking for a stock replacement.

 

 

Installation
Installation was straightforward and very easy to do. The Mishimoto radiator fits as perfect as the stock unit without any problems. Evo 9 owners will probably have to modify the hose to make sure you have a perfect fit, but nothing major. The most difficult portion of the install was draining the fluid in the stock unit. Total install time should be less then 2 hours.

Impressions
On the street, temps weren’t any different then stock. On track was where the difference was apparent. After a full weekend of beating the snot out of the car, the overall temps averaged 7 – 10 degree cooler then the stock unit. The silicone hoses held up to the high heat without leaks and the radiator maintained its performance throughout the weekend.

 



Conclusion
For under $300 this radiator is a bargain for those looking to replace their stock radiators for something that runs more efficient and is lighter then the stock unit. Longevity is something we are currently testing but after a couple of months the unit has held strong without issues. If you are in the market for a new radiator with silicone hose kit, give the Mishimoto Radiator and Hose Kit a try.
